What is Graphic Design

In the fist class of news design we began to go over the basics of what graphic design is and how it relates to communication. The intro to the course covered some basic principles of design but also looked to begin the planning of the design of our own publications and what methods we would use to develop our prototypes.

Overall I’m looking forward to further developing the format of my publication and am looking to do some research into what encourages visual engagement and how I can construct my work to both stand out but also be purposeful.

For me the most important message to be cognizant of will be simplicity that way everything I put together will have a clear flow that is not cluttered with unnecessary pieces.
